Architectural Rendering of rear (Waterfront View) of House
Rear View of Home before Renovation
This waterfront renovation project started during the Spring of 2011 when Jeff Titus, owner of Titus Built, LLC, met with the homeowners to discuss the project. Jeff believes that it is imperative a potential client meets with him to establish a good contractor/client relationship. From the start of the project, our clients have been very excited about the home renovation. To help us visualize their ideas, they tabbed pages in magazines of “wish list” items for us to see:
After Jeff Titus listened to our clients’ requests, and gave them a preliminary estimate of what the project would cost, they signed off on a Design Concept Agreement. Below are the final Architectural Renderings of this remodel project:

Construction Contracts were signed on September 30th and last week we started the demolition of a house on waterfront property in Norwalk, CT. The interior of the home has been completely gutted and this week the roof and ceilings will be demolished to the first floor ceiling. The sunroom will be taken away.

When remodeling a home there are so many decisions that need to be made. A few of our clients’ choices/decisions are listed below:
- Window Manufacturer: LePage, Marvin or Jeld-Wen – Still up in the air, but leaning towards LePage: http://bit.ly/oFbVkb.
- Foam insulation vs fiberglass – Our clients chose foam insulation.
- Decorative concrete floors in all bathrooms; options such as finish, color, texture, etc. are still being decided.
- Radiant heat “warm tiles” underneath concrete floors.
- Our clients purchased antique arched doors and antique parquet floors, imported from France, for the master bedroom.
- 7th C (?) Chinese double sided stone – backsplash for dining room bar which will also show through to the powder room.
- “Smart House”- Our clients chose remote control: HVAC, lighting, security, webcam and audio visual.
